Shivam Dube overview
Shivam Dube is an Indian cricketer. He was born on 26th June 1993 in Mumbai. Shivam Dube is an all-rounder. He is a right-arm medium pacer and a left-hand batsman. He started playing cricket at the age of 10. During that phase, the young Dube used to get throw-down in his residential colony from his domestic corner, and then his job was to bring the ball back from different corners of the playing area. His passion for the game attracted his father. Dube continued playing, but at the age of 14, his career got a big break as he stopped playing due to overweight. During that time he was not able to do fitness training following financial constraints. Still, Dubey returned to mainstream cricket after a gap of five years at his age of 19. Later Dubey revealed that his father was his biggest motivator who pumped a lot of encouragement to Dube even after the loss of his five years.
Shivam Dube is fondly called ‘Lambu’ for 6 fit tall and a broad-chest. At the age of his 19, he returned to mainstream cricket, reducing almost 10 kg weight to improve his fitness and agility. Since then, the product of Mumbai's Morarji School that won under-14 Giles Shield, Dubey is popular for being able to hit big sixes and bowl at 130 kilometers per hour consistently.
